A former Massachusetts corrections officer has been arraigned after making threats during a meltdown that appeared on YouTube.
Former Middlesex Sheriff’s Office employee Joshua Ford reportedly had a mental breakdown when he raged on video about how he was going to harm court officers.
“I’m going to (expletive) break the arms and legs of every (expletive) court officer in that building,” Ford said in the video. “Get your knives. Get your (expletive) guns. Get your (expletive) gasoline and we’re going to show them. Get your (expletive) C-4. I’m going to level the (expletive) Plymouth courthouse!”
Ford was expected in court for a probation violation hearing.
According to WCVB, Ford is facing serious charges as a result of the video being made public, including inciting a riot, threats against court officers and other charges.
Ford was also ordered to undergo an evaluation for mental health.
